Explore key educational issues as they relate to the developing personal and professional identity of a beginning teacher.
|Session||First Sub Session||Credit Points||30 credits (15 ECTS credits)|
Students will be required to think, read and write critically about the key issues that influence a teacher’s persona; theories, research and policies that influence a teacher’s roles and responsibilities; and professional practice experiences as a student teacher in a primary school and community setting. They will identify personally held values and beliefs which underpin their model of a highly effective and inclusive teacher, engaging in reflective practice to develop and advance career-long professional learning and expertise.
Students will broaden their knowledge of educational systems, professional responsibilities and their implications for teaching and learning in the 21st century. Professional skills of communication, self and peer evaluation, critical enquiry and reflection will be further developed within a range of learning contexts. Using collaborative enquiry and drawing on new learning, students will be encouraged to challenge personally held assumptions, beliefs and values about effective learning and teaching.
This is the total time spent in lectures, tutorials and other class teaching.
